New York Knicks Schedule in 2014-15
The New York Knicks are ready to take to the hardwood this season to face some
of the best teams that the National Basketball Association has to offer. The Knicks are coming off a disappointing 2013-14
season in which they missed the playoffs, but the team is armed with a new head coach in Derek Fisher and are looking to rebound
in a big way. It won't be easy, it never is in the NBA, but the Knicks should have a great home crown behind them for all
their toughest matchups at Madison Square Garden this season.
The Knicks will be looking forward to when the crosstown
rival Brooklyn Nets visit the Garden this season. The Nets were a solid squad last year, and they've got center Brook Lopez
back this season. The Knicks would love to take them down a peg or two and send them back to Brooklyn with some losses this
Another team that could give the Knicks some trouble this season is the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavs shocked
the world this offseason by getting LeBron James, the best basketball player in the world, to come home. Expect the Garden
to be going crazy when LeBron and company hit the court there this season. If the Knicks can take down King James at home,
the atmosphere at MSG will be incredible. There are plenty of other top squads coming to MSG as well this season, so check
the schedule out as soon as possible so you don't miss a second of the action.
New York Knicks Team Info
New York Knicks are looking to rebound from a tough 2013-14 season, and there have been a lot of changes to this organization
since the end of last year. The Knicks made a big splash in the front office department by bringing in all-time coaching great
Phil Jackson to run the basketball operations of the franchise. Jackson does not have any previous front office experience,
but there is no doubting that he is one of the best basketball minds on the world. Jackson went out and hired Derek Fisher
as the new head coach after letting go of Mike Woodson. Priority number one this offseason for the Knicks was to re-sign star
forward Carmelo Anthony, which they did. Jackson also swung a big trade that sent Raymond Felton and fan-favorite Tyson Chandler
to the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for Jose Calderon, Samuel Dalembert and Shane Larkin. While the loss of Chandler hurts,
Calderon gives the Knicks their first pure point guard in many years, and a lot of fans have high hopes for his presence in
New York. Dalembert will provide some of what Chandler did, manning the middle and defending the paint. Larkin, a second-year
point guard that is actually the son of former MLB great Barry Larkin, is a speedy yet small player with a lot of athleticism,
injecting a bit more youth in what is mostly a veteran Knicks team. The Knicks are looking for further development from second-year
shooting guard Tim Hardaway Jr., who had a very promising rookie campaign. New York is also hoping that guard JR Smith can
rebounds from a rough 2013-14 campaign and find his shooting stroke once again. This should be a very interesting year in
New York, as fans will get their first glimpse of how things will change under this new regime.

Did you know that New York Knicks head coach Derek Fisher played in the National Basketball Association
as recently as last season?
That's right; Fisher was a backup guard for the Oklahoma City Thunder last season and saw
some valuable playoff minutes before the Thunder fell to the eventual NBA Champion San Antonio Spurs. Fisher spent many years
playing for Knicks general manager Phil Jackson when Jackson was the head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers. Their relationship
had a lot to do with Fisher getting the job to coach the Knicks, as Jackson wanted one of his disciples to man the bench of
his new team.
